as well if there. we've got it coming up, the debt ceiling in may, and 27th of this month, we are running out of money. we've got to extend that as well. so i think those are the opportunities where you actually have cash on the sidelines, get in. >> then there's jim lacamp. you say when the music stops, forget about looking for a chair to sit in, get out of the room altogether. why? >> there are a lot of things we have to worry about, bill and maria. this cyprus thing is going to set some really strange precedents for the rest of the periphery. what's going to happen when they re-open these banks? we don't know. are people going to pull all their money out? i think they will. that's going to spill over to spanish and portuguese banks. if you could take your money across the street and put it in a german bank, why in the heck would you leave it in a spanish bank, a greek bank, a cyprus bank? you wouldn't. >> why would that push our stock market lower there, though? >> we have a stock market, bill, that's responding the to and improving global economy. everybody has thought, oh, europe is
feel like we're headed toward this sort of late spring, early summer debt ceiling showdown. am i wrong? then from a policy perspective, can the two sides meet? >> well, i think it's important to remember that we actually have had two and a half trillion dollars of deficit reduction agreed to already. and in all of the votes that they've taken so far we've had significant deficit reduction and both taxes but mostly in spending. and i would say, you know, it does feel like groundhog day because we've gone through two and a half years. great movie. not so great when it's congress. >> not fun when it's real. right. >> but we feel like we have this, i mean, how many times has speaker boehner said one to one? i know it's tiring but the idea that we're going to negotiate the debt limit? i mean, i think it's -- the president should refuse to negotiate on the debt limit. >> he has in the past. >> i think he should hold to that position now because i think the challenge for republicans is that this whole debate has weighed them down as a party. their numbers get worse every time they go through
